Imagine being able to wander into a nearby food garden at Flinders University and grab a healthy snack of summer-sweet strawberries and crisp sugar-snap peas for lunch...
In Flinders 50th year, we intend to extend the existing permaculture community garden, by transforming it into a thriving on-campus market garden, to sustain the Flinders community into the next 50 years (and beyond).
The market garden will provide students, staff and the wider community with opportunities to learn and gain hands-on experience and skills in growing food locally, cooking and sharing fresh produce on-campus and promote time outdoors gardening for well-being.
Once established, the market garden will be able to fully sustain vendors on campus with fresh produce, making the market garden a self-sustaining business prospect.
The money raised will then be available to start up even more gardens and ventures all over the campus and in the wider community.
Groups already involved in food growing, cooking and gardening on-campus (students and staff) are now joining together to help the 'Flinders Market Garden' become a reality.
Our first step is demonstrating wide support and presenting a business plan to the University.
